Why doesn't the Cure band sing the song Apart in their concerts?

Ulrich

Erm, I'm not sure what it is you're asking here.  :?

Welcome to the forum anyway!  :)

If your question is along the lines of "why does the band not perform "Apart" at their live shows?" all I can answer is: they did, back in 1992. As can be heard on the live album "Paris" (released in '93).
Nowadays they have plenty of other songs to play. Maybe one day it'll be included, keep your fingers crossed.

I have no clue. "Apart" has to be one of the best, if not THE best song in Wish, but as Ulrich mentioned it was only played back in 1992

I have no idea why this song is not included in favor of others, less interestings ones. For instance, "Wrong Number" or "Freak Show" wouldn't be missed in a setlist at all.

It's a little funny to see the answer to the question I asked 6 years later.I'm sorry, it's my fault. It has been 32 years since the song Apart was released, but this song has never been song since the Wish Tour in 1992. I think it's the best The Cure song but it's weird that they don't sing the song. I think there must be a special reason.

Better late than never, Overmars.  ;)

It's been a good song (for me) on the Wish album, not their best though.

In the liner notes from the "Wish remaster" (which I listened to quite often since late '22), Robert said about the song:

"I wrote it about a couple I had known for a long time who were on the point of breaking up. It was an upsetting song because the drama was playing out as I was putting it together. When I listened back during the re-mastering I realised Apart is one of our 'lost' songs. It's such an atmospheric track, performed with real emotion, but as we never played it live after 1992, it fell by the wayside."
